Sometimes, it’s just better to tell them what they want to hear 🙂

Subject: Funny conversation with David 🙂
David: Did you go to work today?
Me: No, I didn’t.
David: Well, why not?
Me: It was too hot today.
David: WHAT?? You’re going to use THAT as an excuse????
Um, I guess he doesn’t understand how Lyme disease has made my joints painful (on a normal day), and with the heat it’s just excruciating.
Me: You know me David, I just like to goof off. I’m really good at being a goof-off.
And with that he huffed disapprovingly, and opened his book. (With that, ‘fine, I guess I’ll just have to do the work then!’)
